Ultra low-cost carrier Flair Airlines has expanded service to include Montréal–Trudeau International Airport starting July 1, 2021, with direct flights to Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax and Abbotsford.

The addition of Flair’s service to Montreal "marks an incredible milestone," the company said on Tuesday (March 30),  as it brings the first domestic ULCC service to the region. 

Flair’s network continues to grow within Canada as new aircraft are added to their fleet and preparation continues for the safe restart of travel while focusing on affordable options in the domestic markets. 

“We are excited to bring ULCC service to Montreal and to provide our low fares to a region where Canadians have been paying far too much for far too long,” said Stephen Jones, President & CEO. “Providing affordable air travel within Canada is an essential first step in restarting travel and tourism. We know there is a need for ULCC service in Montreal and are thrilled to bring our low fares to the area.”

Increasing service in May

“We know there will be a need for affordable airfare once it is safe for us to travel again. As a ULCC, Flair doesn’t have the overhead and costs associated with legacy organizations and networks. This allows our efficiencies to be passed along in our pricing. Families and friends are eagerly waiting to connect, and Flair is here to ensure they can afford to fly once it is safe again to travel," said Jones. 

One-way fares on several of the new Montreal routes start as low as $49 with taxes and fees included. 

In addition, Flair provides COVID Coverage which allows passengers to easily change their travel plans given the continued uncertainty caused by the pandemic. 

Bookings are now available for the newly announced routes for travel through October 30, 2021, at flyflair.com.
